Easy Salmon Avocado Boats

Easy salmon avocado boats.

These salmon avocado boats take 5-minutes to make and are jammed packed with protein, (roughly 27 grams) Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, healthy fats, fiber, vitamin D from the salmon and so much more! If you’re nervous to try canned salmon, don’t! It honestly tastes like tuna, and is so much better for you. 

This is my go-to pantry lunch when I don’t have a lot of time, but want something that is naturally gluten-free, chock-full of protein, healthy omega-3 fats and fiber. This lunch fills me up for hours, and I personally feel energized after.

Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats, magnesium and potassium, all which support hormonal health. 

Fact: our brain is 60% fat, so it needs healthy fat for fuel and brain health, plus fat helps aid with digestion and so much more. So don’t be afraid of healthy fat peeps! 

Check out my video to see just how easy this lunch is to make. I created this video on the fly on instagram. I’m on there all of the time, and post more than recipes, so if you want to follow me on there, come on on by. 

Below is a sample base recipe, but play around with it and add what tastes good to you. I really posted this recipe to have you all consider trying canned salmon and avocado together. If you’re not into canned salmon, feel free to use tuna. I’ve listed some ideas in the notes below the actual recipe.

    This is my go-to pantry lunch when I don't have a lot of time, but want something that is naturally gluten-free, chock-full of protein, healthy omega-3 fats and fiber. This lunch fills me up for hours, and I personally feel energized after. 

    Ingredients

    • 1 avocado, halved, pitted, scooped out of skin - watch my above video if you're confused on this part

    • 1 can wild salmon – I love Safe Catch wild pink salmon - check out their FAQ page to see why I love it so much 

    • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon avocado based mayo – I love Primal Kitchen, as it's made with avocado oil instead of canola oil, uses organic eggs and there is no added sugar

    • Roughly 6 pecans, toasted, roughly chopped  - you can also use almonds, walnuts, basically whatever you have around

    • 1-2 tablespoons hemp seeds 

    • Pinch or two pink Himalayan sea salt 

    • Optional - sliced green onion or diced red onion

    Directions

    • In small bowl, combine salmon, mayonnaise, chopped pecans, hemp seeds and salt. Add more salt, or mayo to taste.

    • Pile salmon on prepared avocado halves, sprinkle with more hemp seeds and salt to taste. Enjoy!

    • Feel free to add to or sub out any of the above ingredients with diced red onion, chives, green onion, celery, cucumber. The list goes on and on!
